A Hyperbo 5 RG Steel if I'm not mistaken.

That'll be a replica I think?  Someone at the Struer Museum said they were so rare the one they have on display isn't an original.

A truly legendary piece of design!

Hi Lee,

Good guess, but the truth is far more interesting...  This isn't a mere replica, it actually works!  Full details to follow shortly on my YouTube channel!

That one looks really fine. Can't see a scratch from here Smile

 

It has four adjustable switches, and they are square and looks to be of some shiny metal.

I have seen another Hyperbo 5 RG Steel which had black adjustable switches. Also four.

I guess they used different switches over time in the production of these RadioGrams.

 

I have attached a photo to my reply here. It shows a model that is different from yours and the one I refered to above.

It has five white switches and it has a metal pipe "leg" that I guess supports the weight.

Do you Steve or anyone else know why this one is different from the others, and is it still a Hyperbo 5 RG Steel? Or does it have another name?

 

Thank you

Hi Champbeo,

Yes, I also found that picture - as far as I am aware it is another Hyperbo 5RG but I guess someone with more vintage B&O knowledge will correct if I'm wrong!  Full details to be shared on my YouTube channel from 9am (UK time) today here: https://youtu.be/QqINcGP8iQ4

Kind regards, Steve.

Hi everyone,

It is time for the full story to be revealed!

Is this the vintage B&O find of the century?  A previously unknown Hyperbo 5 RG Steel - and it actually WORKS! See the full story here on my YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/QqINcGP8iQ4

Hi Peter,

I think Peter Bang had the B33 chair, but yours are a very similar design and a perfect match for the Hyperbo 5 RG!  Love your setup, very nice!

Kind regards, Steve.
